Your ttc journey is unique and sometimes it takes an unexpected path. For those embarking on the journey of IVF, there can be a mix of hope, excitement, and anxiety. I have specialised in Fertility for over 20 years and had my own difficulty getting pregnant. I am here to offer a supportive environment and an effective complementary treatment – Acupuncture for IVF.
Does Acupuncture help with IVF?
Research has shown that Acupuncture can enhance the success of IVF treatment.(1) This therapy aims to regulate the body’s energy flow, balance hormones, improve blood flow to the reproductive organs, reduce stress, and improve sleep – all of which are crucial for a successful IVF cycle.(2)
A study published in the British Medical Journal concluded that Acupuncture can significantly increase the chances of pregnancy with IVF.(3) The research found that Acupuncture, when done around the time of the embryo transfer, enhances the likelihood of achieving a successful pregnancy.
Another compelling study published in the American Journal of Reproductive Immunology reported that acupuncture can even improve the outcomes in women who have experienced previous failed IVF cycles.(4) It does this by reducing uterine contractions, which can help the embryo implant more effectively.
